The world’s most beloved grandma Betty White once wisely said, "The older you get, the better you get. Unless you're a banana." And she has a point! Honestly, what did we do to deserve grandparents? When you were a kid, they let you stay up late to watch movies when you slept at their house. Now that you have kids of your own, you roll your eyes at your rents when your kids get dropped off looking so content and sleepy. Thankfully, we have a national holiday to celebrate the grannies (and grandpas) in our lives. Grandparents Day gives us all the chance to honor our elders. If you’re stumped on how to say thanks to mimi, check out our list of funny and inspirational quotes all about Grandparents Day.
